Patch Knive

Guys I am in the market for a patch knive. And I really don't know for sure what I want to buy. I have been looking at some smaller neck knives.

I also think a Damascus knive would be nice. And from what I have been told they take a pretty sharp edge.

I am not real good at putting an edge on a knive. But I would like to learn.

I am also considering a small folder. Which one do you guys like the best??

Please show me some pictures of your patch and neck knives. Or anything else you think might work for me. Thanks, Tom.

Re: Patch Knive

I had a beautiful old damascus that I used to carry as a patch knife before we started using loading blocks...and I lost it.

Re: Patch Knive

I used a patch knife on perhaps two outings. It was just a plain carbon steel paring knife from Hickory Forge. It had been fancied up a bit and care was taken to only sharpen one side of the blade. Which I read somewhere was proper for patch knives, but darn if I know why. It has been in it's sheath for about twenty years. There is a guy around here called Tuffy that makes some fancy blades for buckskinners. I haven't seen him since March. Wouldn't know how to contact him. He is a member of the Tomahawks here in Eastern York County.

An old straight razor works well.

Re: Patch Knive



Top knife is ground from a car spring

Middle knife, leg bone, was given to me by a good friend who has since passed.

Bottom knife I made from a file.

Loading block on the left is for my .50's, on the right is for my .40

You want a patch knife to cut the patch clean, as you can see on the .40 loading block the knife wasn't sharp and made for a very ragged patch.

As was posted an old straight razor makes a great patch knife.

For those who fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know.

Re: Patch Knive

As for sharpening a knife, I used to be really bad at it till I used a Lansky sharpening system. Once I got the angle right I can literally put a razor edge on my hunting knives. I love the Lansky.
